Well, he didn't actually claim that it wouldn't have any benefit
for sprinters. What he said was that "I think overall that it has a greater effect
on the general contenders who have to be good every day for a long period, and who have to climb extremely fast. It is harder to be successful as a clean general contender than it is for example for us sprinters." (my translation from the original interview, my underscores).
Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't Thor's thoughts on the matter also backed up by statistics? That there are more general contenders being caught than sprinters?
